Newsletters

Introducing my family of newsletters. All gifts when you join The Raft!

The Raft is my online community, open to all. As Rafters, we’re about living from our “true spot,” buoyed by the arts and spiritual practice. Many of us are also into making stuff, whether we’re building community, writing poems and stories, taking photographs, making music, gardening, quilting, cooking …

What’s our “true spot”? Imagine it as an inner place of deep integrity, confidence, compassion, and joy.

We Rafters provide one another oodles of inspiration and encouragement. It’s grand to feel connected to kindred spirits!
